The 2020 USDA Dietary Guideline Report, AAP, and NIH guidelines all recommend introducing allergenic foods as early as 4 months of age, but we understand that this may be earlier than when many parents want to introduce solids. That’s exactly why we designed Ready, Set, Food! to easily mix with breast milk in a bottle.
With Ready, Set, Food!, breastfeeding mothers can continue to exclusively nurse without having to introduce solids before their baby is ready to eat, while at the same time making it easy to start early allergen introduction. Medical studies show that early allergen introduction had no negative impact on breastfeeding.
